December 22nd to January 19th
Three words: Strong, stoic, ambitious! You, Capricorn, are the go-to leader of everyone’s team. Picture a mountain goat, climbing a rocky cliff, and no matter the weather—rain, sleet or snow—you are determined to get to the top of that mountain! You’re known for your natural command, confidence and steady take-charge attitude. You make a great boss and mentor with your brand of tough love. Being one of the most loyal signs of the zodiac, you’re in it for the long haul, and many thrive with your unwavering support.
You’re an earth sign, and tend towards the conservative and practical. You take a no-nonsense approach to life, no bells or whistles for you. “Keep it real” is your motto. You don’t embrace change easily, instead preferring the familiarity of the known. Some call you “old school”--which is true, indeed, you are a great keeper of the flame, of tradition and the light of ancestors that have walked before you. Other keepers of the flame that that share your sign are: Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, and First Lady Michelle Obama. Go Capricorn women!
Your ruling planet Saturn is a tough taskmaster. Saturn plays by the rules and likes to get things right. This can be a double-edged sword—you’re a builder by nature, and often achieve success before many of your peers. The down side is that you tend to beat up on yourself when you don’t get it right. Suggested new mantra: I will not be ruled by “should’s”! (Or in other words, sometimes you need to lighten up, Cappy!)
At the end of the day, you’re happiest…working?! You often associate your identity through your career and are learning to express your essence in other ways. All work and no play makes for a very dull Goat! Your karma in this life is learning to receive. Family and friends are your best allies, so embrace their love without feeling that you always need to take care of them in return. You are loved Capricorn, and learning to receive this is the greatest of rewards!
Your Sunny Side: Loyal, ambitious, leader, grounded, caretaker.
Your Shadow Side: Competitive, controlling, dogmatic, workaholic, dictorial.
